Announces Plan To Stop Showing How Many People ‘Like’ Each Post

Social media app, has announced plans to test-run hiding the “like” counts this week as a way to make “a less pressurized environment” on the app.

According to the head of , Adam Mosseri, “we want people to worry a little bit less about how many likes they’re getting on and spend a bit more time connecting with the people that they care about,” he said during the keynote of F8, Facebook’s annual software developer conference in San Jose, California.

Under the test, the number of people who liked a post will no longer be shown. Users will be able to look at who liked their own post, but they won’t be able to see how many likes someone else’s post got unless they manually count them. A post’s creator will be able to see their own like counts if they choose to do so, Mosseri said.

“We don’t want to feel like a competition. What we aspire to do is lead the fight against online bullying,” Mosseri said.

The hidden like count test announcement comes as expands its efforts to combat online bullying, a problem that plagues many of the app’s younger users. Mosseri also spoke about other efforts the service is considering to combat bullying, such a feature that would nudge users if they are about to post an aggressive comment.
